In the race against truth, the time trial, it is all up to the individual rider. Team tactics do not matter, only the ability to stay in an aerodynamic position and maintain a steady, high output of power. On May 7, twelve of our Team PowerWatts-FitTime Masters riders lined up in their skinsuits, aero wheels and helmets to test themselves against the wind and other competitors at the 18.5 km Granby TT. The result was two gold medal and several top 10 placings for the team.

I was asked if there were 10 people in my group. There were 50 who started, 29 finished. I had two goals – to finish with the first group and to be in the top 10. I succeeded in the second goal but did not stick with the first group.
The 2011 club kit is ready for pre-orders! This year we have gone with a beautiful race-red for the men and PowerPink for the women. You can order shortsleeve and longsleeve jerseys, bibshorts, vests, cold-weather jackets, arm and knee warmers from our online store at MindBodyOnline, the same site where you can view your account and make changes to your PowerWatts schedule.
Some of you may not be aware of PowerWatts involvement with the Spidertech presented by C10. Here is a link to a article in the Toronto Sun in which Steve Bauer describes his approach to building a Protour level team and PowerWatts’ role in it. Exercise Physiologist Paulo Saldanha has been recruited to perform physiological testing and provide training programs for specific individuals within the team. Several of the Québec-based riders have been spotted training at Premier Studio in the build-up to their European campaign which begins mid-February.
